Oh Sees limited edition single is a one-sided 12″ 45 RPM LP released in late 2018 on Castle Face Records. John Dwyer whose the leader of Oh Sees (Thee Oh Sees) give us a long free styled jam. John Dwyer explains it perfectly, “CULLED FROM A DEEP SIMPLY SAUCER LIVE JAM AND REWORKED BY OH SEES IN THE STUDIO AS A BREAK FROM THE MATRIX OF SONG BUILDING. ONE LONG TAKE DIPS INTO THE MUCK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WELL AND PULLS UP A HANDFUL OF EAR SLUGS AND GRITTY DEBRIS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SIMPLY SAUCER AND WAS THRILLED THEY WERE COOL WITH US RELEASING THIS”

Clearly Invisible is a dirty live one-take studio recording filled with sustained notes fizzling out into feedback and loads of the epic dense guitar that made Thee Oh Sees one of the best rock bands on Earth! This is pure John Dwyer freely rocking-out with no regard for structure of any kind. It’s a true early krautrock improvisational styled song that knows no boundaries. This song is unique in Thee Oh Sees lexicon because the “song structure” is Clearly Invisible.

This single is weird, noisy, challenging and far-out and will appeal to hardcore Oh Sees fans but is not a place to start with this band because Clear Invisible is a step outside of what we normally hear from Thee Oh Sees and that alone makes this one a treat.
